Louisiana spent about $1.3 million on food stamps for people who were already dead between 2009 and 2013, the Times-Picayune reports.
A report issued by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor Monday revealed the government waste:
In all, state benefits went out to 3,938 deceased people over the four-year period examined by the auditor. The Louisiana auditor only reviewed records concerning single people who had died. The total amount of money spent on food stamps for single people in Louisiana during this time was $1.08 billion.
Much of the money $556,000 was spent on people who had been dead for at least four months. A fair amount of money $272,951 was also spent on people who had only been dead one month.

Louisiana is the Voodoo state. Lots of hungry zombies.
Think of it as survivors severance pay from their owners.
Here's a non-story!
In the arguably most corrupt state in the country, 0.12% of the funds spent on food stamps went to dead people. That's actually a pretty good record.
Food stamps for the dead?
Well I guess they got to keep their strength up so they can vote in the next elections.
The Federal Government gave the money away.
The dead gotta eat too. They need the energy to get to the polls to vote Democrat.
Dead people have to live too, you know! What heartless sobs you conservatives are.
Are human brains on the list of eligible food items you can buy with an EBT card?
Did all those “dead people” actually spend that money? (sarc)
